How is our programme different to other antenatal or prenatal programmes?

We cover all the typical topics of pregnancy, birth and labour alongside positive mental health, attachment, care of a newborn, breastfeeding or bottle feeding, and early developmental milestones up to a baby’s 6th month.

In line with best practice guidelines, we work as a multi-disciplinary healthcare team, supporting you in any way we can.

“After the birth of my first baby, it struck me that there had to be a better way to prepare expecting parents for pregnancy, birth, labour and care of a newborn baby over and above what the current system was offering”

Lorraine OB Madden, Clinical Director and Chartered Psychologist C. Psychol., Ps.S.I.

“We reference the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) guidelines, alongside information from the HSE and NHS throughout”.
